What are you wearing on your arms?

Just before I left for Europe in May I was given a new product by a gentlemen by the name of Regg. He was looking for feedback from the athletes on a new performance product specifically designed for volleyball player's. I tested them out and love what they have to offer!

Since I started using them consistently, people all over the world have been asking me "what are you wearing on your arms?" Well ladies and gentlemen, here are the reasons for me wearing Skins active cotton performance sleeves.

1) They are based around the principle of the brand new material called "active cotton" which is a one way sweat wicking cotton. This material doesn't retain a lot of moisture and is far more efficient than synthetic fabrics. So for people with sweaty forearms, the sleeves relieve sweat build up from forearms which is a crucial contact point in the sport of volleyball. With such strict regulations on hand setting, we can't afford to be called on a double touch violation and having protective arm sleeves facilitate a dry bump every time, even if you are a sweaty sponge!

2) The fabric itself grips the ball better than bare skin. This gives me a superior feel on the ball which I truly believe improves my passing percentage. I can feel a firmer contact when the ball hits my forearms which improves my forearm passing accuracy and precision. 

3) They retain heat and allow for your arm to stay warmer. This keeps the elbow joint fresh and keeps your muscles warm and activated.

4) They provide protection from the sun's harmful rays.

5) I get to look like Allen Iverson!

The product is still in the development phase but will hopefully be available for purchase in the near future. I will be looking to rep the product so if you have any questions please feel free to contact me through the blog.

Looking forward to using them as Chaim Schalk and I push for a few Western Canadian victories at both the Vancouver Open and Centre of Gravity Games!

And here is the new flyer on a side note! Hope you like this Liz and Heather!


  1. I saw you and Binstock wearing those forearms bands and wondered what those were. When are they gonna be released to stores like Canuck Sports?


  2. The bands are about to be fuly released as they were doing some finishing touches over the summer. I have dropped off a bunch of exclusive products at Spank It sports in Victoria and you might be able to order some online through them if you aren't a Victoria resident

  5. Some bodies have a high burn rate of calories, which prevents
    them from accumulating fat. During your resistance training
    workouts, you should practice fascial stretching.

    A great way to always maintain the proper form is to leave your feet firmly planted on the ground, and always grip the bar no more
    than shoulder width apart.

  6. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog in the
    near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

  8. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious
    to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
